Carlos Condit makes his pick for UFC champ St-Pierre vs. Hendricks

"I'm going to have to go with Georges St-Pierre," Condit said on Friday's edition of "Inside MMA" on AXS TV. "Georges St-Pierre, he's just a more polished fighter. Johny Hendricks, he's dangerous, and he's got good skills, but he's a little rough around the edges when it comes to his whole game. "Georges is just such a technician. He puts together things so well, and he's just a sharp, clean fighter, and I think that's going to make a difference in that matchup."

GSP- Nick Diaz's pre-UFC 158 trash talk just a business decision

Georges St-Pierre"It's not my fault," St-Pierre told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com). "It's just that they don't have a lot of pay-per-view buys. I sell a lot of pay-per-views, and they want to have the money.

"They talk their way into the fight. They win, and they try to get that fight. They talk, and then there's a big story about it."

"This is the fight that everyone wants to see," St-Pierre said. "All the fans want to see it. It's a fight that he wants. It's a fight that I want, and I think it's going to make the best version of me come out for the fight."

"All fights are very, very important," St-Pierre said. "It's a very, very tough fight for me. But they're all very important.

"I believe everybody I fight has great things about them. They're the best in the world at what they do. I think the same thing here, but I don't care what Diaz is going to try to do to me. I care about I'm going to try to do to him. That's what's going to happen on March 16."

According to White, St-Pierre has said he wants to put a beating on Diaz. 

"I want to hurt all the guys that I fight," St-Pierre said. "The goal is to win by knockout or submission."

UFC women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey is being courted by Hollywood


Reports surfaced earlier this week that Rousey already had a movie offer – a part in the upcoming sequel to "The Hunger Games," starring Sunday's Best Actress Oscar winner, Jennifer Lawrence. Not a bad start.

"You know how I feel about the movie stuff," White told FUEL TV's "UFC Tonight" on Tuesday. "The hard part is, even like the Rampage thing – when 'Rampage' did the movie, it was Rampage's dream to be a part of 'The A-Team' and everything else. I don't want to take away any opportunities away from Ronda, but at the same time, the thing that you have to keep in perspective is that her window of opportunity as a professional athlete is (small). She could make a zillion movies when this sport's over. And where she's really going to make the money is here fighting. I don't care if she's the lead role in ‘The Hunger Games 2,' she would not make anywhere near, and I mean not even in the universe, to the money she makes fighting."

"A movie takes her out of the mix for eight months," White said. "A movie like 'The Hunger Games,' that movie is an international blockbuster hit. So when that thing launches in the U.S., she has to do all the press for that, all the press for the U.K., and every other movie that that movie launches in.

"She can't be gone for that long – she really can't. It's something that we talked about briefly, but we haven't really gotten into it yet."
